Check out Rocket's Island (formerly known as The Knot) which starts tonight 4th December at 6:15pm on CBBC!
Screenterrier followers may remember a casting call for this new CBBC series back in May. Now it hits our screens starring two young newcomers, Joseph Galluci (represented by Sandra Singer Associates) as 11 year old Rocket and Helen Smith from Essex playing 14 year old Alli.
Casey is played by Keith Rice (represented by Robert Kelly Associates) from Liverpool with Sydney Wade (represented by Scala Kids) from Leeds, who played Amy in Marchlands, as his younger sister Lena.
On a beautiful, secluded island farm, Rocket Boulsworth lives in a world of possibilities. He even has his own cave where wishes actually come true.
He and his sister Ali are used to having temporary siblings. Their parents foster troubled kids on their idyllic Isle of Man farm. But Rocket reckons there’s something odd about the latest pair, who converse in code and whose stories don’t match.
This three-part drama combines a beautiful setting, a cast that includes some familiar faces… and a heroic sheepdog.
